make a boot disk

I have a dual boot system with win 98 on hda, and mandrake linux 10.1 on hdb.
I have to do some fiddlying with windows and i really would like a boot disk on hand just in case windies loses my lilo. Can anyone please tell me how I can make a boot disk, and also does it need to be formatted in DOS or linux.

simple answers please 'cos i'm not too clever with computers yet.

Normally, your Linux install cd will do the job. What distro are you using? it may have it's own method of creating a boot disk.
